The Nigeria Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige has stated that his monthly salary after tax deduction is N942,000.

Ngige made this disclosure on Monday during an interview tagged ‘Politics Today’ on Channels television.

Speaking on the administration’s commitment to workers’ welfare in the last eight years, he said even political officeholders were not left out in the excruciating economic situation in the country.


When asked about paying workers’ salaries from June and beyond, the minister said, ” I’m not the Central Bank governor, neither am I the finance minister. These two manage the Nigerian economy, the fiscal and micro. Even if it means printing money, I cannot print, and I don’t know how it’s done.

”My salary is N942,000 a month. That’s my salary with my Personal Assistant, that is the gross total after taxation. Every minister you see, that’s what it is. Special Adviser too, is around that amount at the federal level.”
